Our verdict


The Leather Slip-On from Vans offers a sturdy, clean, and sleek full-leather design. An iteration of the brand’s very own classic Vans Slip-On, this low-top silhouette ditches the traditional canvas upper for leather while keeping the padded collar, elastic side accents, and waffle outsole, presenting a more nostalgic vibe. Its low asking price is quite compelling too.
